But it's going to put so much power into your hands to truly know how the process works and also we're going to dive into specific nutrients foods that actually assist in the enzymes in the hormones. Involved in a fat loss process the very first thing understand right out of the gate is what are we actually dealing with here when we're talking about burning fat. What are we dealing with here so often in our society today. We're trying to target and to get rid of something that we don't even understand what it is. We don't even know what it is it. We're trying to get rid of in. So the first thing that i want to share with you and this is a very important. Understanding is at body fat itself. Your fat is an oregon. Our body fat is in oregon. We tend to think about it. Like is just scattered droplets of stuff throughout our bodies scattered droplets of unhappiness sometimes scattered throughout our bodies. But it really your fat cells in your fat cell communities which we're gonna talk about. They worked together as an organ much. Like your skin is an organ that really and move throughout your body is a big part of your nervous system. Your body fat is a huge part of your indifferent system right. It works together much.

Guest Teacher Jon Mitchell How to Maximize Productivity With Biohacking
"I brought on john. Because i do feel that. A lot of us as entrepreneurs neglect will we put in our body. Our physical activity or nutrition. All that because of the business. I've been guilty of this several times in the last decade and were all bizarre brought on john to give some laser focus advice on how to bio hacker way to success and be more productive passage john now. But i'll be back to wrap up to episode fill in any gaps but for now taken away john. Everyone this john mitchell. I'm really excited to here. And what i want to do. Today is to teach guys how to go about optimizing your health energy mental performance. And how to do it the right way because there is a lot of noise and confusion online in the health space. And what i wanna do is help you sift through all of that for for those of you guys don't know i'm a functional medicine practitioner. I work virtually with driven professionals. Looking to improve things like energy focus and resolve any chronic health issues that are keeping them from being at their best. Both at work and at home and i've worked for over ten years. I started off on the conventional side of medicine working in the emergency room at urgent care and addiction medicine and then i transitioned over to functional medicine which is more a whole body systems base approach to optimizing your health and i've i've learned firsthand that conventional medicine is great at certain things. It's great i'd taken care of acute issues broken bones infections and surgeries but it's port helping people achieve robust health and maintaining it. Which is what. I'm passionate about and why i do the work i do because people are starting to realize the limitations of the current medical system right and if we're talking about your business or your job the question is why should you prioritize your health versus prioritizing your business well from a business perspective you need to be at the top of your game right. You need to wake up with energy. You need to have the mental clarity to get your work done. And you need to be level headed enough to deal with the constant stressors so as a business owner myself. I understand that Owning a business or even just working in a jock can be very stressful. And you need to have the the mental strength. You need to have the health to be able to handle those things properly and move ford if your health is non point you're not going to be operating anywhere near one hundred percent. You're going to be leaving things on the table. In fact what. I find with many of the professionals that i work with is that they don't even realize how bad they feel and how much they're leaving on the table until we get them feeling better. So what i wanna do is. I'm going to lay out three pillars to optimizing your health. And how to do it the right way. Okay so pillar number one. Let's jump right into it. Recognize you are a category of one so everybody has unique genetics upbringing lifestyle environment habits and nutrition that inform their current level of wellness. So what you need. In nutrition and supplements lifestyle is going to be very different than what somebody else needs. So this is why we can't blindly follow online influencers or healthcare ruse. Because they don't know anything about you right. They can't tell you. Oh you should be on akita genyk diverse vegan diet versus a carnivore diet because nobody knows your blood levels. They don't know your genetics. They don't know you history and all those things are going to influence what diet you should be on current time so i wanna give you guys a good example of this from two different clients. Mine who had similar complaints. So both were both were men in their forties or fifties and we'll say client number one complained of brain fog fatigue and he had type two diabetes and he was on a strict ketogenic. Diet was doing intermittent fasting or not. Johnny on a paleolithic diet into an intermittent fasting was exercising an our day and yet his blood sugars were still running in the two hundred zero higher when they should be under one hundred and the question was what was going on and when we did the right testing found that he was being exposed to some significant environmental. Toxins that were damaging his pancreas. The panthers is what produces insulin to help regulate blood sugar so regardless of what diet he tried regards if it was cute genyk carnivore vegan or anything in between he was not going to get better until we address this toxin issue right. And let's compare this to clyde number two who had similar complaints brain fog. He was overweight. Type two diabetes. He followed a ketogenic diet and fasting and he lost a lot of weight. Blood sugars regulated. And he did great on that so one person did not do well on a very restrictive diet. One person did because it depends on what they specifically need. Okay so always recognize you are category one in all recommendation should be based off of that so that brings us the pillar number to quantify what you need using the right labs right so i see too many people who just take things for things. So i'll see people take things like kuala or some mushroom blend for focus or they'll take zinc and dhea your tributaries for testosterone. But how do you know that you actually need these things. And how'd you know you aren't doing more harm in the long by taking these things. So let's take zinc for instance. Some people probably know that. It's hard to overdo zinc. You can take a lot of and you really won't get into trouble but what the problem is if you're taking zinc It will influence your absorption of copper. So the more zinke take the less you absorb copper so you can create mineral imbalances by taking the wrong supplements if you don't need them and if you're not tracking you can create issues over time. Okay so instead of guessing what diets and supplements are best for you. It's better to know what's best and you do this. By focusing on the right testing so we wanna do is focus on strategies over tactics as specific diet or certain supplement is a tactic akito genyk diet. Carnival diet intermittent fasting. They're all tactics. What we want to focus on strategies instead. Okay so our strategy is going to be influenced by your health history which should be somewhat should help you get a foreigner standing of your health history and put it together combined with some advanced testing so when it comes to determining what types of diets in supplements you should take what i like to use advanced nutritional profile and within that there should be a comprehensive assessment of your vitamins your minerals your amino acids fatty acids heavy metals. Your mitochondria metabolites transmitter. Metabolites and your detoxification

I can speak to the benefits of eating real food both professionally and of course personally as well if you read my bio on weight and wellness dot com. You'll see that. I've had some very serious health problems over the years myself. So i truly know the value of eating real food for my own health at nutritional weight and wellness. We all believe health is so much more than the number on the scale does so true. It's so much more we have to feel good. You have to feel good. Everywhere had shoulders knees and totally. It's sad to say but is true. That many people just focus on their weight and now their overall health. Well i know that for me for years and years. This was really important. So i was always looking at what was the scale. What was on the scale now. What was going on internally. Well joining me this morning as you can hear. A voice is brittany. Vincent who's also a registered dietitian britney. You also have had some health problems that went away when you switch eating real food. Yes very transformative. I understand so share with us. Some of your pass health struggles with the listeners and how you overcame them well good morning everybody. You know I was in my early twenties and after finishing while towards the tail end. Finishing school to become a dietitian started having insomnia migraines. I was really tired. i will never forget. I was at a bar with a group of friends. And i like conked out in the in the booth because i was so tired. Oh no and i. It was not from partying. It was just ringing so tired. Exactly as like oh i know. That's when there's something going on. And i always say i saw the light finally an eating real food. I was looking at what i was eating and it was really just processed low fat. I mean everything that i was taught in two and so i made an overhaul of eating more fats Real vegetables purchasing better quality foods and then all of a sudden. My energy got better. I was sleeping better Eliminated gluten as well. My magazines basically disappeared and hers. Feeling great feeling as you should as a young adult and i think that a huge huge Switch that. I made was really the fat really because i was not eating those healthy fats. So making sure and getting that tablespoon of butter or olive oil avocado oil. Some not some avocado. I think really made made a huge difference for me. Plus just tastes delicious. Oh right so much. Easier to eat your veggies with some delicious fat on it and you know i think that For everybody listening that you can definitely be touched in many different ways of just changing changing your diet. Some just curious did you have anxiety that is sort of resolved. I did not do not while the insomnia would be racing thoughts but other than that. No no no. But i'm happy. That's that's over. That is not fun So you know. Understanding the science of nutrition to help to solve a personal problem is so powerful. I think that Experiencing these things ourselves just allows us to better help. Our clients visits us mercy and compassion for everyone who's walking through door or through zoom. Yeah right so you know britney when you were talking about that. I got to thinking. Let's discuss getting back to our topic. We're discussing ways to avoid weight gain during stressful times and certainly living in the midst of the pandemic has its own unique and unpredictable. Stressors right but many of us have had other times in our lives that we have also had highly stressful times so when i was going through cancer and treatments and all surgeries. I was stressed and my family was stressed. In lots of scenarios we can have tremendous stress. I think the most important thing that we can learn during these stressful times is how we manage our stress so true that we have some. We can develop some tools today. We wanna focus not on the stress but on how how each of us can increase our stress management skills. I want us all to focus on the foods and behaviors that increase our stress management skills. The first step is to to see that we have the ability to improve our bodies ma- how it manages that stress. Think of it as adding some tools to your tool box that you can pull from that. You have some control in how your body manages stress. Yeah and i hear that from clients who really are dedicated to eating real food throughout a stressful time and they comment. I am handling this a lot better than i. otherwise would be. It really is about chemistry. And i know people's character. It is in our survey reported in the journal of obesity included peop- people from different counties but also from different states in the in the us in the study found that the corona virus pandemic for many adults has led to a major decrease in their healthy habits and that they had that they had practiced prior to the pandemic and the study found two thirds of people eight more junk food well only a third eight healthier meals cooked at home again about two-thirds exercise less because gyms were closed but many rescue dogs and consistently walked their new dock. Some have more anxiety slept less where others were able to sleep longer to to less commuting time some people viewed the pandemic as a time to cook more healthy meals at home sleep longer also to have time for a pet. The sussex study also broke down the results by the different bmi classification such as normal weight overweight and obese ir that study in the study i noted to the study found the stay at home. Order had the most negative impact on the individuals in the obese category actually found. They found the anxiety. Scores increased most dramatically in people with obesity. The people with obesity also gained the most weight during the stay at home order so from results of the study. There are many different questions we could ask now number one do people of normal weight. In general practice better healthy habits for number two d normal weight people have fewer cravings. Find it easier to maintain a healthier eating plan number three to overweight and obese. People have more stress in their lives. Very good questions. Yeah do you have the answers necessarily but we're gonna talk. We're gonna right so to answer some of those questions. We want to share some basic lifestyle and eating habits to help you avoid weight gain during stressful times. Because i am seeing in clinic. I do see clients who've gained weight who've had a weight problems stressful and if it's a chemical chemical process and perhaps another way to live at this time is to find ways you can increase your stress management skills those tools in your toolbox that may be a new thought for you and yes you can learn and practice certain tricks to manage your stress whether it's during the pandemic or taken high school or college exam whether you're going through health crisis and i think time to dig into a demystify these tricks and the first trick to come out of the magical hat is eat breakfast every day. Not a sundays days. Breakfast is in spat especially important if you have stressful meeting or Chemistry exam or presentation or you studied all night absolutely. We're going to get back to eating breakfast but we have to take a break. I you are listening to dishing up nutrition and we are discussing how you can avoid weight gain during stressful. Times will be right back. Welcome back for dishing other for many of our clients. Tell us they need healthy new snack ideas so we decided to share a couple with you today. Make an egg. Salad with celery and expel or pressed. Safflower may or avocado mail. Then place a scoop of the egg salad and a half of a red pepper love I love deviled eggs as well. So my favorite is our salmon patty recipe that's in the weight and wellness way. Cookbook and nutrition guide. It's also on our website weight and wellness dot com ad and variety of raw vegetables. The vegetables to and you can Dip in some mayo at that. And then you've got this nice balanced out snacks so stay tuned and we will give you additional snack. Ideas have to say i love that I never tried it until pre pandemic one of our front desk staff gals was eating it. And i thought oh. I want to try this and she goes. Oh get a fork. I tried it. I was like it so delicious but when looking at the ingredients. I thought me when i wanted to make now i make it. You just plop it. Cook it and then take those patties and freeze them. They freeze great. Yeah so easy. It's awesome so stay tuned because we're going to have more of these ideas we are and i think it's time to dig into and demystify these tricks that we have the first trick to come out of the magical hat was eat breakfast every day. So fringy have for breakfast. I had leftover hamburger patty at six thirty. This morning did in samantha's and For something quick. I had part of an apple. Yeah wonderful e you got a gun. It wasn't gone. My husband always makes a eggs for me. He always gets up. When i have the radio show and So a couple eggs. And i also do half of an apple with sunbutter easy. Yeah got it done early in the morning forest feeling good for the radio show feeling over the radio show and you don't take out your energy you know and i always tell my clients breakfast really Tone for the day. You are going to feel better having a balanced breakfast. And then you're naturally going to make healthier choices because you're starting the day with a balanced blood sugar. It really makes the world of difference. And i the key to that balanced blood sugars like i had the eggs the protein and you had the hamburger patty protein and that kind of anchors not only your blood sugar but also begins the process of making those rain chemicals. The neural transmitters us that helps us with our day. Yeah yeah. I have absolutely recognized. I need enough protein in the morning just to feel good the entire day so i need at least three ounces. Good to to get me started. And i think that you know. A lot of people aren't in the habit of taking the time to make breakfast Your after something easy so you might sit down. Pour your favorite dry cereal in a bowl until the bolas fall. Always you know not a cup of cereal. Several cups of syria but that may be inviting obesity earnings -iety to come visit. There's been many studies. Demonstrating that high carb. High sugar diets often lead to anxiety and obesity. So what could be happening when you eat a big bowl of breakfast cereal which could easily have eighty one grams of carbs. When you consider how high carb that is in how high sugar foods affect your brain chemistry. It's very likely this unhealthy breakfast is causing a reduction in your serotonin. Level and serotonin is one of our. Most important are transmitters. You can think of neurotransmitters feel brain chemicals and serotonin helps to make us happy calm. Less anxious more focused all things that we that we need right. If you could just have a cup of serotonin But the next step we can just buy a coupla. Serotonin is that protein xactly so importantly we know a diet. High in processed carbs raise blood sugar level above normal and then the pancreas produces excess. Insulin leading to people being overweight or obese So when we say process carbs pathetic of the foods that come from a factory versus a farm Cereal is one. there is no serial bush. No there's not another interesting fact. Is obesity associated with having more anxiety one study found at the obesity. People have a twenty five percent increased risk of suffering from mood and anxiety disorders. Additionally chronic stress can also increase the fat stored in the abdominal area. And around our organs it is also an increased risk for type two diabetes heart attacks. High blood pressure so many risk factors we want our clients to avoid absolutely. And that's often a question i ask A new client. If weight loss's one of their goals asking them whereas there where they have gained weight where they're storing it can indicate to us. Hormonally what could be going on. And i'm sure you can agree. But i'm hearing more and more. People are starring in their abdomen that stress. And then also you know. Eating more processed carbs increases insulin resistance so can really be twofold mentioned earlier. We talked about if you have that bullet cereal and maybe skim milk. Possibly sugar sprinkled on. Tom It raises that blood sugar. And when your blood sugar goes higher than the body once it to It really is a stressful event entirely. Yup and when we have that stressful event internally we're increasing our stress levels yep so that's a simple tool really it is and you know. Our body doesn't know the difference between that stressor of eating cereal or the stress from covid. No good point. We respond to it the same way So keeping that in mind and again we have control of everything. We're putting in her mouth. So if that can impact stress that much We really need to take control of that is that is to have control over few things and that is one of i
How A 100-Year-Old Treatment Could Help Save Us From Superbugs
"In twenty fifteen. Stephanie strategy and her husband tom paterson. Both scientists were travelling in egypt. They sell the pyramids the nile and then as she tells it in this text talk after dinner one night. Tom became violently ill. He vomited all night long. And i thought oh gee he's just got food poisoning and i pulled out a couple of antibiotic pills that we take with us on our trips and i gave it to them with some water. Nothing happened the next day. Tom kept vomiting. Stephanie called doctor he thought yes food poisoning and set up an iv drip for more antibiotics. But tom only got worse at a local clinic. He was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Inflammation of the pancreas and medevac to a hospital in frankfurt and there. He was diagnosed with something even worse. A superbug a bacteria by the name of oscillator b-actor bowman scary name scarier bacteria it tops. The world health organization's list of most dangerous superbugs bacteria that are very hard to treat often resistant to many antibiotics. Now we'll never really know for sure where time got his superbug infection. But we do know that. It was an egyptian stream. And we know that. By the time he was medevac. Thome to san diego that it was resistant to every antibiotic. Tom was in a coma. His organs were shutting down. He was on three different drugs to keep his heart. Beating and the doctors told me that tom was going to die. But seventy refused to give up. She turned to the scientific community for help. I'm maddie safai today. on shortwave. What stephanie found and how it saved her husband's life. It's a century-old treatment. That could be a new tool in our war against super bucks for months stephanie's husband. Tom would remain hospitalized fighting for his life and losing. Yeah i was just really scared out of my mind. But i knew that if i just sat back and waited then he was going to die and i needed to know that i'd done. Every last thing that i could do that i would leave no stone unturned so i hit the internet and i did with anybody else would do in my shoes. Google it well. Luckily you know there's google for scientists and that's called pubmed and it's this wonderful search engine where you can put in any words and a scientific paper will pop up and you know i punched in words like multi drug resistance and the name of his superbug which is assassinated b-actor mania and popular within an hour. I found a paper that mentioned something called page therapy. So tell me a little bit about fish there. Well fay jr are short for bacteria phages and that's derived from the greek word meaning bacteria eater and they are viruses that have naturally evolved to attack bacteria there's ten million trillion trillion pages on the planet. It's all a matter of finding the ones that will kill the bacteria that you want to get rid of. Okay real quick phase one. oh one i like. Stephanie said bacteria phases the viruses that infect bacteria are everywhere pretty much anywhere you find. Bacteria you'll find a phase we're talking and artika deep-sea ocean vents your. But i swear that'll make sense later. Second facials don't actually eat bacteria in this case the fees injects its own dna into the bacterial cell. Then the virus forces the bacteria to make more and more copies of itself feeling up the cell with viruses eventually the bacteria bus open releasing all those new viruses. Go off and kill other cells. It's ruthless
What's the Best Time to Eat Dessert?
"When is the best time to eat dessert. I've heard that it's better to eat it immediately. Following a meal because the protein and the meal will help stabilize the blood sugar. But i'm often too full after my meal to enjoy desert. I'd prefer to wait a couple of hours. In fact i often crave a sweet bite a couple of hours after eating his that. My blood sugar plummeting well. This is an interesting question. Let's start by taking a look at how eating dessert affects your blood sugar. Our blood sugar does go up after we eat and not just desert but this is not necessarily a problem in fact it's how the system is designed most of the carbohydrates we consume are broken down into glucose which is then absorbed into the bloodstream when blood sugar levels go up. It triggers the release of insulin from the pancreas which ushers the glucose out of the bloodstream and into the cells of the body. They're the glucose used as fuel or if no more fuel is needed it's stored for future use. It's also true that carbohydrates cause a faster rise in blood sugar when they're eaten by themselves but this is also not necessarily a problem if it's not a huge amount of carbohydrate then no matter how fast it's absorbed your blood. Sugar can only get so high and then assuming that your body is capable of producing insulin and your cells are reasonably responsive to its effects. Your blood sugar will gradually returned to normal regardless of how quickly or slowly it's absorbed however eating an excessive amount of sugar or carbohydrate can be a problem for one thing no matter how slowly it's taken up into your bloodstream. It all gets in there eventually. So if you are consuming more calories than you can use. The excess will be stored as fat. But what happens if your body is not able to efficiently. Clear that sugar from your blood into your cells because it's possible for the cells to become resistant to the effects of insulin. And when this happens. The sugar isn't cleared as effectively from the bloodstream. Only is it not available then as an energy source for yourselves but chronically high blood sugar can lead to a number of serious health issues. Insulin resistance is often the first step in developing type two diabetes. A lot of us. Worry that if we eat too much sugar too often it will lead us to develop insulin. Resistance or diabetes. But now we understand. It's more the other way around insulin. Resistance or poorly controlled diabetes results in chronically. High blood sugar. It turns out that eating a lot of sugar or eating foods that are rapidly converted into blood. Sugar are not the primary risk factors in the development of insulin resistance. The primary factors are excess body weight especially around the waist and a sedentary lifestyle. Now that doesn't mean that eating a lot of sugar have consequences if your body weight starts to drift up whether from over eating sweets or any other food that does increase your risk of insulin. Resistance in other words for those who do not have diabetes or insulin. Resistance the short term impact of desert on your blood. Sugar is probably not as big a concern as the long term impact of desert on your body weight. Our podcast received support from aero garden.

If you've always worn a mask thank you if you haven't learn more at h. dot. Virginia dot gov so. Should you wait before eating dessert. Anita wondered for example whether the fact that she starts to crave a sweet treat a couple of hours after eating might be assigned that her blood sugar is plummeting a couple of hours after a full meal. Your blood sugar may be beginning to return back to baseline. But that's not the same as plummeting and it's not a problem. It's fine for your blood to remain at baseline. For a couple of hours. Your cells will still have plenty of energy from your last meal. It's more likely that once we're no longer full our minds simply return to the thought of that appealing desert. There's a really big difference between being not full and being actually hungry and when sweets and snacks sound good but vegetables or another healthy choice doesn't sound that good. That's usually a sign that were not. Actually hungry were responding to other triggers such as boredom habit or simply the presence of attempting food. So how can we responsibly. Enjoy desert in terms of managing your blood. Sugar there's really not a big difference between eating dessert with your meal or a couple of hours later even though you feel less full after a couple of hours there's likely to still be enough food making its way through your digestive system to cushion the blow in fact there's even something called the second meal effect which means that a- protein-rich meal can blunt the effect of carbohydrates. Eaten up to four hours later waiting. A couple of hours might allow you to enjoy your dessert a little bit more than you would immediately after the meal and if we're going to have dessert let's be sure and enjoy it on the other hand waiting until later. Could tempt you to eat more than you would if you were to eat it with your meal so if you prefer to eat your dessert a couple of hours after dinner just be sure. The portion sizes stay reasonable. And if you want to enjoy desert with your meal you could always eat just a bit less of that main meal so that you have room for a bite or two have desert without over filling your stomach and finally whether or not you have diabetes and or not you choose to have dessert or when you choose to enjoy it. There is a simple and pleasant way to lower post meal. Blood sugar levels. Just take a fifteen to thirty minute. Walk around the neighborhood. It will help with digestion. It'll keep those blood sugar levels steadier while you digest your food and may even help you sleep a little bit. Better

"pancreas" Discussed on 710 WOR
"In two choices for a free, informative booklet and DVD. Hey, Dr Liederman were back. We are back. We will talk about a patient. She's 68 years old. She's a woman with no Children. She came with her fiance. She's pancreas, cancer and pancreas. Cancer is one of the biggest Killers of American. It's often growing without you knowing about it. You can't feel the pancreas. You can't see the pancreas. And that's another reason why it's such a dangerous cancer. So this woman is 68 years old. Came to be with her fiance. She has high blood pressure and cholesterol, diabetes and abdominal pain. Jizz on narcotic. She's constipated, and about three years ago she had a hernia. Kid abdominal pain. The Marines. Shot of Pancreas, Mass. Went one of the biggest hospitals in New York. The most famous hospitals and the surgeon like I talked about so often the surgeons and, well, we better cut that thing out. Well, they operated on her. It is big Super Pooper Hospital did Radical surgery on her pancreas. And then after the surgery, she had chemo therapy for a year. Well, we know that chemotherapy doesn't cure anybody with pancreas cancer and then her cancer markers is blood test and this is very important. Many cancers have blood tests and the blood test given idea whether the cancer is gone or present. Well, her cancer markers. Air rising shouldn't repeat Cat scan and the cat scan showed the cancer came back right in the same area where the surgeon operated, and also in the lung. Well, the problem is that our surgeon and there came a doctor didn't tell her that the cancer came back in the same area. She was just in pain. They gave her narcotics. They told her. The cancer traveled in the long But I guess they were probably embarrassed or ashamed to say that the cancer came back in the same area where she had the radical Whipple procedure has abdominal pain, Jas abdominal tightness, You put moxie. Coding. And then she had constipation while narcotics cause side effects that you got constipated from the OxyContin, and she's vowed plan for more and more chemo or the chemo didn't work before. So you give her more chemo surgery didn't work. They left to cancer behind Thie chemo. Did it were the cancer came back, and now they're going to give her more of the same, which didn't work before. Does that make sense? I don't think so. I don't think that makes sense at all and we staged or are we staged her up. And like I say, we would like to know where the cancer is. We believe that patients and their families want to know what's going on. And that's what we do here. We explain what's going on. Give me documents. This is the work that we do every day. And so he staged her up. We got a pet scan. We've got cancer markers. And yes, we confirmed that the cancer was right back where it started. And the lungs. All that surgery didn't were the chemo did it were And that's unfortunate. If you look at the success rate, that's what happens most likely compared to our work for pancreas cancer when we attack the pancreas with body radiosurgery, where the first America the first in the Western Hemisphere and, of course, the first in New York, But we attack cancer, pancreas cancer. Our success rates about 94%. The rest of the life of the patients. So when we attack it, the success rate is very high where we aim the beam, which is very different than the surgery and very different than the chemotherapy, because This patient had radical surgery. Whipple procedure for Pancreas. Cancer doesn't work She had a year of chemo didn't work, and now they want to get the same treatment that didn't work. And it just doesn't make sense. And that's why so many people come here for a fresh second opinion because they want some doctor who thinks differently than their doctors. Who got them in such a pickle. Remember? Average chemo is $10,000 a month so a year of chemo $120,000 and the surgery is tens of thousands of dollars and it's not easy surgeries of this patient went through. Difficult times with surgery difficult times with chemo and it didn't work, and now they want to give her more. That's why she came here and she's getting treatment with us, and we're planning to treat the cancer of the pancreas cancer of the lungs. This is the work that we do every day at 13 80 for Broadway Broad with 38 Street in the heart of New York City, don't know what a gentleman who is 47 years old, So it's a very young man. He's from to make a black man and I say it so many times. But in the black community is an epidemic about prostate cancers. Everything you're 47, you're safe. Listen to this man. He's 47 years old. He's married. He was seen by his doctor had pelvic pain. Pain in the testicle. He hada Pierce a done just a few weeks ago. It was 280. No normal pizza is for this is 70 times, hires 280. And then he had to repeat Piazza if that was right, and it was 300 a few weeks later is 300. He had a biopsy. There was Gleason, nine. Gleason knew that there was ah Different risk for different appearances of the cancer in the old days when a biopsy would be done of the prostate be yes or no cancer or not, yes or no well. Police understood that he could help predict the future by looking at the cancer and how the cancer appeared of the microscope. He made a scale from to 10. The higher the number and this is one of the highest number is nine. Predicts a very serious outcome. So spank comes with a very high P ece, which is also prognostic indicator and the Gleason nine very similar prognostic indicator. And then he had an Ameri showing cancer growing into the seminal vesicles or seven testicles are just adjacent and superior to the prostate and in the lymph nodes. And he went to one of the most famous hospitals of New York City where they know they should know that if you have a P ece of 300 lymph nodes involved that radical surgery.

He had more chemotherapy it to them to work. His cancer traveled, so it's a Problem When you give chemotherapy for pancreas cancer, we know number one doesn't cure anybody. In this case now I didn't like your him, but it didn't allow control of the cancer and the cancer's kept on growing to go to the liver. And then he tried different chemotherapies. They didn't work either is probably cross resistance. Some cancers, weather resistant tto one key mother, often resistant of many other chemo. And then the most shocking thing. They went back to the same five ofyou that didn't work at the beginning. They gave it again. So they ran out of ideas. They're giving a failed chemo. Why would they give chemo that failed before? Again. It didn't work before. It didn't work. It was toxic. Lots of costs. Lots of side effects. It didn't work. Why would you give a key mother doesn't work?

Second eighteen eighty one chaim say Garfield arrived at the Baltimore and Potomac train station for a much-needed holiday. Just four months had passed since the former union general in Ohio. Congressman had been sworn in as the nation's. Nation's twentieth president as Garfield Carriage pulled up outside the Baltimore and Potomac Charles Gucci Paste the waiting room inside ready to fulfil what he believed was a mission from God at around nine twenty am. Garfield entered the station. Longside Secretary Blaine, who had offered to escort him to his train, as strode through the waiting room Gutierrez, snuck up behind them drew his pistol. He fired two shots at the. The should from point blank range. The first bullet only grazed Garfield right arm. The second struck Garfield in the lower back, and knocked him to the floor. He was immediately carried to the train and laid on the floor. They're bleeding profusely from his back wound within minutes, ten different doctors had arrived to examine him an try. Locate the second bullet though no one knew at the time, the slug. Slug had missed the president's arteries and vital organs and embedded itself near his pancreas time it was very survivable injury, but the army of well-meaning physicians only worsened the damage by using their unsterilized fingers and wants to probe the wound, introducing germs, and potentially causing an infection Thomas Lister a name. You might recognize from listerine. A big promoter of the danger of germs protested, but the doctors would have. Have none of it after an hour of excruciating prodding, the president was carried for the train station to the bedroom at the White House. Is Doctors feared? He would not survive the night. Forty nine year old president had rallied the first few days after the shooting, but his condition worsened after Dr d Willard Bliss administered heavy doses of Quinine Morphine and alcohol, which brought on doubts vomiting that left.

In August, he even enlisted the help of telephone inventor Alexander Graham Bell who used a crude metal detector, called an induction balance to search for the slug, the machine at work perfectly in test, but the screening failed due to interference from the springs and the president's bed to make matters. Matters worse bell was only permitted to search the right side of Garfield, body, where bliss, incorrectly believed the bullet was lodged by September a massive infection, most likely caused by medical treatment have left Garfield with persistent fever and obsesses over entire body.

Concerned About Prediabetes and Diabetes?
"Part of your body. As you just heard the list so every body's system. You have and your brain. Diabetes can cause low moods, poor memory, weak blood vessels, fragile bones, kidney disease, just to name a few, but truly the list does go on, and on the bottom line, keeping your blood glucose numbers in the normal range of eighty to one hundred is critical to maintaining good health and avoiding the potential risks that Brittany just mentioned. An F.. Half the population has either prediabetes type two diabetes. You really need to understand what diabetes is an how to prevent it so you should know also what to eat, but what to avoid, and if you have diabetes, or if you are concerned about getting type, two diabetes will also start by talking about what's actually going on in your body. If you have type two diabetes, that's right so first of all diabetes is a disease in which the body cannot get sugar or glucose into your cells for energy. The pancreas makes insulin so insulin is a hormone that helps deliver glucose to your cells. And we know your body needs a certain amount of glucose for energy, but those high glucose levels greater than one hundred twenty six. That falls into the diabetes level type, two diabetes level, and can cause the health problems that Brittany talked about earlier. The Kidney Disease Heart Disease Depression Alzheimer's many many more. And as a Dietitian, I frequently have clients. Tell me my mother has diabetes. My grandmother had diabetes, so they often think it's a genetic problem in yes, genetics can play a role in getting diabetes, but the truth is our lifestyle. Habits actually play the biggest role in whether or not. We get type two diabetes. That those poor lifestyle habits can lead to insulin resistance, which is the most common cause of type two diabetes.

What is that? It's polishing is a fully Polish name. And you know in the in the hard thing is like we say it now is in American word. Polish names are not meant to be said as American work. It's just so let me let me hear you stay it. Will I say the same way that you said? At the first time I said Bolsa wits I say both Switz- but if you were to go to Poland's they would stable Schevitz and actually think Bolsheviks just roll off the tongue. You know what it does bull shit like that Wife is Polish her her last name. Coalition ski so I think she's my cousin. Actually yeah I see a resemblance So we got a lot of exciting things to talk about here today. You know I think for starters what I'd like to ask you is so you are a gastroenterologist and I think I pronounced that correct. You did a gastroenterologist and so what exactly is a gastroenterologist we are the we are the experts on all organs of digestive function so one of the things that people kind of look at me including my mother-in-law the first time I met her like why did you decide to become a doctor so and so let me. Just say the the reason that I love what I do are the reason I love what I do is that if I were cardiologists I would just be a heart guy all day long art all the time whereas for me I get. I get to have diversity as we're GonNa hold earned during this podcast. Diversity is a good word I love it And so I. I'm the I'm considered the expert on the Asaf. Igus stomach. Small Intestine. The colon the pancreas the liver even the hemorrhoids. I'm expert. That's a good thing to be expert and I bet you I bet you that the line out your door is never ending. Probably can circumstances. There is a line out the door. There is no lack of business. I'm not worried that no matter what I put into the world's that I truly believe a person like my book every person in the entire world could read my book but unless they all actually do. What's in the book? I don't I'm not GONNA be putting myself out of business anytime soon. That's for sure. Yep You're talking about the book and we're GonNa get to the book which is Super Exciting. It's your first book right for smoke. First Book Fiber fueled what? I'm going to save that for a little bit later. So gastroenterologist and how long have you been practicing finish my training in two thousand fourteen so basically six years? Now I've been in practice. But you know if you if you look at just sort of Long drawn-out path and I know that you're familiar with the way this works. Yeah I started college back in ninety eight and I went and I did for years of college. Four YEARS OF MED school. I did four years of internal medicine residency including I was achieved president northwestern and four years of GI training to become a specialist in part of the reason why did four years is actually didn't Epidemiology Fellowship University of North Carolina. So that's sixteen years at Sixteen Years. From Ninety eight until twenty fourteen finally wrapped up. You know it's Kinda funny. I thought about this too by the way sixteen years of training but like working eighty to a hundred dollars a week which means that just my training alone is essentially the equivalent of what most people do for the entirety of their labor campaign. Before they retire. To- totally sixteen years of training right before you went into practice before I enter crackers before you enter practice and in that sixteen years of training. How much information that you have been your new book fiber fueled. Did you learn in that traditional setting and when and when did your education really begin? The education never stops never stops. And that's that's true. I think for all of us but I think that's particularly true in medicine if you're if you're not constantly updating your knowledge base in medicine than your rapidly going to become a dinosaur and but with regard to your question rib and this is a completely valid question and it's one of the weak points to me of traditional Western medicine. I will openly acknowledges very little very little training on Diet. Nutrition lifestyle in honestly. What kind of one of the big things that I did along the way to try to update that nutritional training was actually did the e cornell. Course yeah so. That's that's just one of the things that I did but it's it's actually quite shocking that I do sixteen years of training and have almost no conversations about. How do we fix a person's diet to address the root of the problem well and I would imagine that and correct me if I'm wrong here but I would imagine that those line the lines of people that are out your door that are seeing you because they have some sort of a GI issue distress That ninety percent of those could be resolved by filing what we're GonNa talk about today which is really a a whole food plant based Diet. That has a huge diversity of fiber. That that too simplified. I don't not only do. I not think I think that is spot on number one and number two might here ninety percent and think that you're overreaching and you're being hyperbolic and actually think it might be more than that right. I mean I have not exaggerating. I literally I literally bleed and I'm not saying that that ripped that we would live in this Utopian world where we all live to be two hundred years old literally no disease at all. I'm not saying that what I am saying is that if the root of the problem starts with our microbiome which in my specialty that is where the root of the problem starts if the root of the problem is the microbiome and number one way that you can change. Your microbiome is with the food that you eat then. We need to be doing that when we take care of these patients. Otherwise we're knowing the root of the problem we're putting a patch over it with the pill but so you say the term microbial but in your sixteen years of training was that was that discussed or is that kind of like for example. I feel am. I'm embarrassed to say that you know this is kind of you know wh my huge passion right and I didn't know about the microbiome and how it's considered kind of like the second brain in the lost Oregon until like three and a half four years ago. I mean to the conversation. Just start recently about this or you know others these studies. There's these studies where they say. Okay how long does it take from the day of publication for it to actually get into common knowledge among medical doctors when they look at that? But they come up with seventeen years. It's at seventeen years from the day of papers published and I just think we don't need to be practicing medicine with the research studies that came out in two thousand and three right now. I think we need to be practicing medicine with the Research Studies. That came out last week or or this week right. It's time for us to update and that's the beautiful thing. Is that everything? Every single thing in my book is sourced. It's all source. There are six hundred references. And I'll be honest. I challenge doctors. I challenge the doctors who are listening to this show. Want you to read my book and I want you to check my sources. Because they're there and I think when you do you're GONNA learn you're going to learn that this is the path

Creating a Culture of Contribution with Tom Rath
"There's this crazy thing going on right now. The United States is filled with people that deeply want to care about the work that they do every single day and at the same time the United States is simultaneously filled with business owners. Who are desperately looking for people that care about the work that they do every single day. So why exactly? Can't we figure this out? Why can't we bridge this gap from the Ramsey network? This is the entree leadership podcasts. Where we help business leaders grow themselves their teams in their profits. I'm your host Alex Judd. And today we're talking to world renowned researcher and the best selling author of the new book. Life's great question. Tom Rath and in the mountains of data that he has collected on high-performing leaders teams in the workplace. He's found one very specific pattern a pattern. That could help bridge the gap between leaders and their teams. That pattern is an increased focus on contribution. Yeah you know one of the things that I realized pretty quickly as I started to look at the broad challenges that we face out there. Today in terms of the fundamental relationships people have with their work which on average across organizations are nowhere near as good as they could be one of the challenges. Is that There's just a huge misalignment between all of the individual talent. That's out there in the marketplace today. And what the world needs and so you know we've been pretty good over the last hundred. Two Hundred Years. It aligning products and services with what customers need. But we haven't made anywhere. As near as biggest strides in terms of matching individuals are with the demands that are out there in the workforce today. And what I realized as I dug deeper into this as we've done a pretty good job of helping people to understand their own talents there on passions and their own interests. But we really haven't done much with trying to determine what are all unique ways in which we can contribute to others lives in a real meaningful and productive way and you know I was deeply inspired by one of my favorite quotes from Dr Martin Luther King Junior and I something I asked myself. Every single day which was his famous quote about life's most persistent and urging question is. What are you doing for others boy? I think that's just a great way to Orient. Your Day orients your day around contribution and adding to things that will continue to grow in your absence. So that's what helped to focus a lot of this work powerful as you were saying that I was thinking about that John F. Kennedy. Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country. And it's amazing how The Martin Luther King Quote John F. Kennedy quote. There's something that when we hear that we kinda say that's right. That's what I need to be spending my time on and it's related to that topic of contribution so I'd like to know. How do you define that word contribution? Yeah you know it's interesting. I worked through a lot and was the first thing about. How do you help people to connect with a purpose or meaningful work which you hear a lot about it when I really got into the practical application of how do you get? People focused outward instead of inward every day and focused on how they're adding another person's contribution is really about the small bricks that you're adding to a wall over time essentially and it's more of the things that you're doing in the next hour today that might had to someone else's well being might inspire someone a day from now that in my case with my kids might contribute to their development and growth even five ten years down the road on days. When I'm not there helping so I think contribution I would define it as anything you do. That has a positive influence on another human being the continues to grow in your absence and those things usually start small and grow over time continues to grow in your absence. Why that Fraser? Why is that important as part of this definition? Well you know that's important to me from some of my own personal learnings. I talk in the opening of this book about how when I was sixteen years old. I was diagnosed with a real rare condition. I went blind in one eye. Because of it and doctors told me that I would be likely to have cancer. In my kidneys and pancreas and spine over whatever course of a life. I might live and I've battled cancer and all those areas and I bring that up because what it did was even from that young age over the last twenty five years. It got me very focused on. What are all the that I can work on this afternoon? Then we'll continue to grow tomorrow week from now year from now and eventually when I'm gone and what I've learned that experience there is you know it may sound kind of morbid from the outset but when you start to think like that it really does get you focused on more productive efforts during the day and things that you can feel good about tomorrow and many years from now and he gets you focused on what I would call or what I think I David Brooks talked about this about a year ago New York Times Column More Eulogy Values instead of things that go on a resume that are more sterile and tactical so it almost sounds like you're talking about like a mindset or an attitude for leaders but also just for individual team members is this mindset developed like do you have to go through a life altering transformative experience like you did to change your mindset or is it learned or how can we build up this kind of way of looking at the world that contribution is the first thing that we're thinking about. Yeah you know. I think it's like a lot of habits is a great question because it's in my experience in working with people working layers. It's bill with repetitions and it's built one day at a time and if you can step back and say in the next three hours what could you do? Even for fifteen or twenty minutes that would make a meaningful contribution to the growth and development of one other human being whether that's someone who looks to you for leadership whether that's a customer whether that's a family member just taking that daily focus is what helps you to build cumulative days that are better and better as time goes on and you know the other thing. I've learned that's been. I'm through this project in the last year with the book and the website around contribution is the more time you can allocate. That's directed outward toward contribution to others in meaningful efforts during the day. It actually minimizes a lot of the normal stressors that we have with all the things flying at us and all the pressures and demands of the day. And the more time you spend looking inward it actually leads to more insecurities more stress in the like where when you can anchor. Even a few of your efforts outward it takes a lot of that pressure off in the process. That's pretty remarkable. And I love that you talk about it as a habit because that sounds like something I can take action on. That sounds like something I can control. That sounds like something. Every leader can invest their time into. So what is the practical action? People can take daily or maybe even hourly to just start moving their mind towards an attitude and a posture of contribution. Yeah I think that's where it starts. It starts with bringing the humanity back into the work that we do on a daily basis and having conversations about it with our team members because one of the things that I realized when I got into. This is every time we sit down as a team to start a new effort instead of looking at other members of the team joining the group and saying what's there background. What is their resume. Look like what's their bio. What's their job description? We need to sit down and have a more personal conversation about who we are and why we do what we do each day. So that's why as part of this book. I put together a resource for people where they can go through and say. What are the big roles you play in life so for me? That's being a dad and a husband and a researcher and sometimes a writer and what have been the most influential life experiences that have shaped by what I do and so if you sit around and talk about that as a team had helped to bid and then maybe most importantly anytime you bring a group of people together or the whether that's two or three or five or fifteen people if each person can go around and say how do I think I can make a unique contribution of this team because so often we all get excited about something and we're just off and running without even having a discussion to make sure that each of us feels like we can make a meaningful contribution and we're doing that in complementary ways instead of ways that essentially overlap and it takes six months to realize. Oh we were all doing the same thing
The Link Between Obesity and Cancer
"Both cancer and obesity are serious health risks. Let's look at some data about the increased rate of obesity. The National Adult Great in two thousand sixteen was almost forty percent. This is even sadder that child obesity rate was just under twenty percent nationwide so obesity has increased by seventy percent over the past thirty years for adults and children by eighty. Five percents crazy. What does that mean in reality? It means four out of ten adults over. The age of twenty are considered obese. Carolyn O. That's just oh then the thought of that is just you know. Are we headed? Yeah where are we headed? And we see every day but You know it's really scary. So the American Cancer Society estimates that forty eight hundred new cancer cases are diagnosed each day each day. That's nearly five thousand cases daily so the lifetime probability of being diagnosed with cancer is slightly more than one out of three people. Wow how that's really scary. So researches found that about five percent of cancers in men and about eleven percent of cancers in women can be attributed to excess body weight however the connection between weight and cancer can be quite complicated so some studies suggest that on the risk for some cancers if he'd appear to be more for people who are overweight as a child or as a young adult so. I think this is really alarming because as you just said over the past thirty years the obesity rate for children has increased by eighty five percents. So where are we headed? Where and you know I love. I love where we're going in our society when it comes to decreasing fat shaming and decreasing The all of the the love your body as its as it is and I love that however we have to look a little deeper in. Are you putting your health at risk? Because that's really what's important here. Loving yourself is fantastic and But we WANNA look at. What is the risk factors attributed to obesity? And when I think back to my elementary school days it really was very rare to have more than Really one overweight child and class but today teachers tell us that many children need classroom are overweight or obese. And you have to ask. Does this mean as these children are aging that they're at a higher cancer? Risk It could go very high so that. That's the scary place. Yeah it really is so listeners. You might be wondering. So how does obesity actually cause cancer? So let me see if I can explain this a little bit so we all understand. The risk You are taking. If you're carrying extra body fat. You know many people who are overweight frequently. Stop looking in the mirror you know. That's not very comfortable right or they refused to be weighed or they you know they. They won't way themselves and they won't themselves at the doctors. I don't want that lecture Yeah No of course not or maybe. These people stop shopping for clothes until they lose some weight. A man like I hear that I'm not gonNA shop because I need to lose some weight and we've all exactly but do they lose the weight. Unfortunately that just doesn't happen and as Dietitians. We've heard it all right now but I don't think most people realize that extra body fat is really increasing. Their risk for cancer perhaps to really seriously Understand a about losing weight. Many people who are overweight or obese half to realize the results from these decades now of research it's involving millions of people and this research clearly shows the link between being overweight or being obese and getting cancer. So what I want you to realize. Is that being overweight or obese is much more serious than just how you look how you look in the Mirror. Of course of course once again How could be in a way cause cancer? Let's look at the biochemistry for better understanding our listeners. Fat Cells make extra hormones more growth factors and inflammation. And when you have extra fat is specially around the liver pancreas heart and kidneys the fact consistently sends out messages to the rest of your body.

What is Carb Cycling and How Does it Work?
"Before begins thought talking about Cobb cycling on. Do you all to remember less. No Special Diet quick fix or any of the fancy way or underway all building muscle and losing body. Thirty five comes down to calorie surpluses and deficits and exercising and burning more energy taking in and so on but cobb cycling can be away. That helps you stick to your diet better. So you can lose fat and build muscle depending on your goal but itself doesn't have any special fat-burning or muscle building properties. He's let's first begin by looking at COBB's themselves. So when cops suggested they break down into glucose and this is the preferred fuel your body and brain and on as glucose enters your bloodstream. Your pancreas is then signaled to produce. Insulin which is a hormone shuttles. The glucose from your blood into the cells where narrative then converted to energy will stores like gin or stored in fat cells and COBB. Cycling is planned. Alteration of your carbohydrates hydrate intake. So you'll have high cobb days and low cobb days typically. If you're hunting a high carb day this might call through to have anywhere from two to a two point. Five grams of carbohydrates per pound of body weight on a cart high carb day and a low carb day might be somewhere around nor point five grams of carbohydrates. It's per pound of body weight and the main reason people start cobb. Cycling is to try and prevent a Fatma's Plateau and maintain the metabolism Along with that workout performance and it aims to time you'll carbohydrate intake to win. It provides maximum benefit on exclude. You'd cobs to win the not needed. Many of you will know. cobbs a double edge sword withhold that that can use it to muscle growth by fueling our workouts. What's in creating a more anabolic environment. And our bodies. But we're also told that can use to fat storage by SPIKING are insulin levels which almost feeds our body. Fat With the Glucose Coast needs to stall so a lot of the time. People do see cops as the enemy because they wanted to to gain access. Wait however we do need cobs if we want to gain muscle and strength as quickly as possible and obviously it's all about being the deficit if we want to avoid paying the price of an ever expanding waistline and carb. Cycling is meant health health pause. Stop the pitfalls of building fast you to Cobb's whilst obviously giving us the anabolic environment. That COBB's provides a few our workouts accounts. So you can prove your carbon take based on a variety of different factors and this might be your body composition goals so you'll potentially reduce you'll cobb during a diet then Adam back in during a bulking phase when you're trying to put on muscle mass so you might as old them depending on training and rest days so you have a high carb intake take on trading days so I was talking about before about maximizing your calls potential and then have a low carb intake on rest days. You don't need as much fuel for your body. Some people follow. Scheduled ritual repeats which is techy to do one or several days to very high carb intake to act as reef e during prolonged diet. And your the following repeat you might be following a strict diet of say fifteen hundred calories five days per week and then consuming twenty five hundred calories with all the additional calories coming mostly mostly from carbohydrates on the other two days. You can even consider it if you'll come to a photo shoot or competition as I've all running for example as athletes Wilson Melson cobblers prior to an event. And this shows you the different objectives. People have when they consider altering the carbon take and following us with Cobb hop cycle said a hire car days are meant to replenish glycogen stores and boost your training intensity because of that it's meant to favorably the influence various hormones related to muscle protein synthesis and metabolism which includes the anabolic hormone insulin. And it's meant to temporarily elevate insulin nevels to help preserve your muscle tissue and boost muscle growth and then you usual lower carb days to maximize fat-burning almost like as we talked about. Kito before. Four really minimizing your cards and upping the facts and to get yourself into a state to fall asleep while you're burning fat stores instead of like Gin. Strategic High Saikal periods can also help improve function of the weight and appetite regulating hormones which we talked before as well called. Leptin and Ghrelin go into any more detail on the manipulating effector. Insulin levels wants to give a surface level explanation on Cobb cycling because I want the main thing to remember from. This is that that it's not a secret method to enable you to constantly build muscle mass and lose fat. It's another way to help you stick to a diet on your high carb OPD. Asian meant to feel like you're indulging in cheating when actually or not to retain actually amount you normally eat but it feels that way because you've been lacob spinner baits calorie deficit so so it feels like you're almost rewarding yourself out

"Media. Well of the two big cultural juggernauts, I m- only involved in one I could care less about the vendors and game. But I was in on the battle of winner fell on game of thrones. We should definitely say that media candies probably going to have some spoilers. So. Yeah, I don't. Yeah. If you haven't seen it too bad. And I don't care if you spoil anything for avengers for me to me that's going to talk about it. But I'm not going to spoil anything for. All right. Well, I'm going to try not to spoil too much on game of thrones either. But what I thought was really fascinating about it, as you know, how there's always those metrics like there's there's more video uploaded to YouTube every minute than the entirety of video that we had from World War Two or there's there's more photos posted every minute on Instagram than the entirety of photos taken in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Yeah. I think there was more words used on the game of thrones episode than anything else ever in the history of the universe because even news sites had at least ten to fifteen articles about. This episode of game of thrones. What you can't get away from it. I mean, it is everywhere. And if you know everywhere, if you're not if you don't know what happened by now than you live in a cave, you definitely live in a cave. But so did you enjoy it? At least, you know, what here's the thing while it was on. I thought it was one of the best things I've ever seen in my life an hour and a half of a TV show. That was basically just battle was riveting I found it better than most movies that are ever made my wife had we had to stop it a couple times and my wife had to go get a heating pad because she was clenched up so much. She was starting to get aches and pains in her shoulders because of the stress of watching it and like what's going to happen? All my God. And of course, peering into the dark trying to figure out anything. But we'll talk about that in the second. Yeah. And I really did enjoy it. I thought it was a great episode, and I went to bed very happy. And I was like, wow, they could have they could really just have ended the show right there. And I probably be okay with you know, that's what I was thinking too. I'm like a shit. We got three more episodes left. I'm like the rest is just paperwork now like we got rid of the big Batty, and we're gonna find out who gets the throne and who gives a crap. Really? So I would have been totally okay. With that. I mean, obviously, there's lots of questions that we still want to have answered. But I thought that would have been a fantastic ending to the show. Yeah. The the funny part about is like now the last three episodes are going to be like the last, you know, the final ending of Lord of the rings. It's like we're gonna have seventy seventeen different endings like I had to piss forty five minutes ago who the hell still getting on boat. I know it's fucking boat going take it over. So that was my feeling night of now the next day. I had some problems. Okay. And it was perfectly. I did. Finally, find an article that perfectly encapsulated my feelings about why I'm a little unhappy with this. It's over on slate, and it was written by let me get the author's name, really quick credit where Credit's due will pass skin. And it's the title of the article is game of thrones taught us to want death than it changed the rules subtitle being is it wrong to feel disappointed when too many people survive and the whole point of this article, I agree with this is that game of thrones has pulled the rug out from under us that is the whole point of the show. We started the damn show first season with killing off the main character. Yep. It's always been unpredictable. It's always treated its characters as they are toss away and throw away.

Well, we're not sure yet if the system is implemented drivers would have the option to not share the data. I'm assuming this will be. Of course, it's going to be often. It's gonna be opt in they can't got us out. But we know how things were allowed. Sometimes it's just that button magically just gets clicked. Yeah. I don't know how that happened.

So shockingly Twitter is not a good model of the world. Even though we tend to think it is. And certainly act like it is they've done some metrics on this. They've done some studies in the US Twitter users, statistically, younger wealthier and more politically liberal than the general pop. I guess it's just the box that are far right to say. Yeah. If you take out all the Russian Botts, then maybe maybe it's different. Yeah. So this is a pew study. They also substantially better educated. Forty two. Scent of sampled users had a college degree versus thirty one percent for US adults broadly. I had no idea it was actually that low of forty one percent reported income of more than seventy five thousand dollars another large difference from the country as a whole they're far more likely sixty percent to be Democrats or leaned democratic than to be Republicans or lean Republican which is thirty five percent. And but the pew study was actually able to capture some more information about that. Which is that. And this is not going to be surprising to any listener of this show. The Twitter of the platforms fanatics is very different from the norm. In other words media Twitter is not medium Twitter.

That's what we do here at radio surgery, New York when all the other treatments, just don't work. I should tell you that. He stopped smoking in one thousand nine hundred seventy and smoking is one of the main causes of bladder cancer. So if you can stop smoking, and I know you can't if you're a smoker, please do so so for this man, we're just finishing up treatment of his bladder and his lung why? Because most likely we are going to be able to help him and stop the bleeding in the urine and stop the pain in the bladder. Elsewhere. That's the work that we do here. We'll talk about a man came in Hispanic man with a Gleason nine PSA nine and his book for surgery at one of the super duper big hospitals in New York. Well, you go look at this police and nine PSA ninety book trysofi surgery. I can tell you the chance of surgery working is next is. So why are they doing it? Why do you think they're doing it? So the patient came to us, and we told them the data and told. Them the logic and told him what his options are they can get staged up. Just because the surgeon there wants to cut on him and remove his prostate, which most likely will not cure the cancer most likely caused him to lose sexual and urinary function. We think there's not much reason for him to have any surgery radical prostatectomy with a Gleason nine PSA ninety. He can look at our data can look at our book, it can meet with us. And he did. Luckily here about our work before that surgery was undertaken and he's canceling the surgery why because he understands that most probably surgery opener robotic will not cure him and most likely will take away his sex life and near an every life and quality of life. And that's not what he wants. He wants the best chance he wants to avoid surgery with a good quality of life. And that's why so many men with prostate cancer, come to us radio surgery, New York government one of. The big governments from the Caribbean came their population as one of the highest rates of prostate cancer in the world, and they came to establish a relationship with us to send their patients from that Caribbean nation to us at radio surgeon, New York neces- kind of outreach we do to try to help people wherever help is needed one person at a time person by person each one to try to give the best care to everyone. And that's why we follow my grandfather's advice when he went to see the doctor fifty five years ago, and I asked him Graham's. What did you do with the doctor's office? He said, well, I told the doctor to sit down close the door and stay awhile. And well, that's what I do with my patients. I'll do it with you. If you come to our office, sit down close the door and stay to learn who you are. And what is your medical condition? How we can offer all the choices all the options. To you in the most logical way. And I want to talk about a woman who came she's about a fifty year old one with a stage one b cell lymphoma kit, a mass in the shed, the mascot out. She's been seen by multiple doctors all over New York wanted to give her a chemo and other treatment for a stage one lymphoma, she came to us, and we talked about chemo, but she just does not want chemo owners. Good data for localized radiation for stage. One lymphoma b cell lymphoma with good results and twitchy chose here at radio surge in New York for her lymphoma, which is very very sensitive to focused being radio surgery. So another patient who thought she had to have came. Oh was given no options until she came to thirteen eighty four Broadway. Broadway in thirty eighth street in Manhattan, where she learned otherwise talking about another man who came from Iran. So yes, patients come from all over. And that's everyone's right to come. And get the best possible care is a seventy year old man from Iran. He's married. He has one daughter, and he came with a rapidly rising PSA and Gleason six cancers PSA went from three and a half to seven and a half and one year. He's a textile engineer in Iran is lots of anxiety and lots of worry, and he was really worried that his PSA more than doubled in a short period of time from three and a half to seven point four has multi focal Gleason six cancer had. No Extracapsular extent. The biopsy was positive. He has knocked Tori, wakes up once or twice to urinate, and he's a variety of doctors. I don't mean by their weight or their girth are their hide. And then he came to us and saw the data. He saw everything that he needed to see we were the only center that provided data for him. Why do we do that? Well, we think it's incumbent upon us to provide information for. Prostate cancer is treated last winter and has already gone down from seven and a half down to one is in remission. He said, no side effects. He's traveling now back to Iran. I gave them a letter for the airline to say that he had treatment for prostate cancer. He's in remission, very happy. And with a good quality of life and avoiding radical surgery, avoiding the deformities the difficulties in the convalescence and the impotence and the incontinence of open or robotic surgery. That's the work that we do noninvasive treatment for prostate and other cancers for him. Bravo, glad you came to New York. Glad you had a good experience. Glad you're in remission. Glad that you honored us with your presence. Now talking about a fifty four year old woman. She's a teacher married with three kids, and she has history breast cancer. She I had about a four centimeter mass in the breast with positive lymph nodes. This was about three years ago. Shed chemo chemo, chemo and surgery and the cancer came rip roaring back, which means that the surgery and the chemo just didn't work then a cancer came back. She had metastases and shed chemo chemo chemo chemo chemo chemo chemo. And by last month, she had pain in the neck, and she's had pain in the hips. And she came to me about ten days ago. She's lost thirty pounds as a poor appetite. Her weight is one ninety three she's normally two hundred and thirty pounds. She's five feet five. And when I talked to her she didn't volunteer this information, but I like to talk to patients and like to investigate the whole body because we need to know what's happening the person. And in this case the question crew critical. She has numbness in the genital areas. Around the Jain around the anus and difficulty controlling the urine, which is new and she's starting to lose control. Of walk and she's a hold onto her husband. And she came to us in the same day. Remember before I said stay away from the slope pokes when your health is at risk stay away from the slow pokes when your health is at risk. She came to us. We got the history and the same day we got her insurance approved and the same day, we got an MRI of the spine. And sure enough we found cancer wrapped around the spine and wrapped around was called the Cada equine, which is a Latin term for horses tail because with a spinal cord ends it turns into little fibers upcycle horse's tail those fibers go to the legs and the genitals the bladder and withers cancer wrapped around people often numbness in the genital areas. And the Ainhoa area often have difficulty with walking. And that's what she had lucky. I sat down close the door and spend time with her and every patient diagnosed her offer treatment immediately. And that's the work that. We do here at radio surgery, New York. So does experience help is experience count. She was saying our other doctors just seeing our other doctors at big hospitals and the tri-state area. She saw them knowing diagnosed her known order, they are I know and asked her about the, numbness what a difference it makes you can ask why would a doctor trained in three separate areas. Why would a doctor want to be extensively trained nine years after medical school because I felt the best training would provide you the best medical care just like this woman. So if you wish you welcome to give us a call or come in make an appointment. The best way to be seen in evaluated is to make an appointment. Someone people think calling and asking minute, I got this. I got that. She never even thought to talk about the numbness in her bottom should ever thought to talk about the difficulty urinating. I asked people whether their symptoms. She never thought about those questions were the questions that led to the. Diagnosis of cancer, and they caught a equator and proper therapy. So is it helpful to come in? Is it helpful to spend an hour. So I should say I live in Long Island so far away. Meanwhile, we have people flying in from China, and Japan and Israel in Italy. If you want to come in. You're welcome to do. So we're honored for each patient. If you don't that's okay. You're the president of your body. You get to decide we serve you. If you wish, but I'm telling you most often patients do not know the critical questions to ask about their condition or the symptoms. That's why it's so important to spend time with each patient examine each patient under review the documents of each patient, and that's what we do here at radio surgery are I know lots of other places one of the big hospitals had patient or patient went there by mistake and the residents call and the interns call and one day one calls and tell them the story the next day. The other one calls the first one. And tell him, and it seems like no one knows the diagnosis. I said well, the patient used to go to you until he came to me, and then he decided not to co there anymore. It seems like it's the reason why because no one knows what's wrong, and how to take care of this patient. I said who's the attending doctor who's in charge. Even I asked his wife the wife of the patient with cancer at the big hospital. Does not know the name or the phone number of the attending doctor and has never seen the attending doctor who's responsible for her husband's care. He said, well, how would I know the attending doctors? Well, it's simple. Maybe it's on his armband. Why don't you go to the nurses station and ask for the doctor Astra's phone number and sit down and meet the doctor? So is it useful to listen to this program? Yeah, we're teaching you and everyone listening how to be a better patient is it's tough out there. It's really tough for patients out there. That's why it's so different here at radio surgeon New York boutique where you have a doctor a real doctor who's available to you not the Stewart. The clerks not the other's a doctor who is responsible for your care at thirteen eighty four Broadway in Manhattan where we do..

"Eight years old who had a localized cancers. Locally advanced Bruce localized having spread and he started chemotherapy. And he hated the key. Komo therapy hated how we made them feel and so he stopped the chemo. And then he went for three or four months. With no treatment. Well, another teaching point cancer doesn't wait for you doesn't wait for anybody. This person had some chemo, and then nothing was done just gave up on the medical system because he didn't like the medical system. It didn't do him any favors. He felt he had this cancer. Which is sad news. Then you had the chemo, which was sad news. So he stopped everything until a listener someone like you. Maybe you told them to call Dr Liederman, and then he came in. And he told me this story about being in these three big hospitals and are viewed as records and he was an ex smoker. Physical exam was not very remarkable hit a drainage tube in place, but other than that normal physical accepts it tells you something else, which is normal physical exam doesn't mean you don't have pancreas cancer. That's why testing is done and there's not routine testing to find pancreas cancers early, but his was found early because of the jaundice, so sometimes warning signs like jaundice lead to serious problems in Hammett did. But then he didn't get the best possible treatment he got treatment, which he hated stopped the chemo took four months came to us. I saw him we restaged and in that period of time, the cancer grew and it spread to lymph nodes. So again, another teaching point just because you stop the chemo doesn't mean the cancer stops and just because you're the test for months ago, showing the cancer spread that doesn't mean the cancer hasn't spread today. And then this man, he stopped the chemo. The cancer spread came to me we got him staged up. And now, here's a pancreas cancer and lymph node involvement. Now, it's all localized lymph nodes. And therefore, we believe we should give him the most aggressive possibilities that we talked about all the possibilities is that is not really a surgical case right now, you can have chemo chemo for the rest of his life. If he wants president want that. And it's not a very good option. Chemo by itself. Doesn't cure anybody. So it doesn't really want that. And he wants our tree. Why does he want her treatment because we have the beam for pancreas cancer a ninety percent success rate in stopping the cancer? And that's what he wants to have some control of this cancer to try to stop it. Because he hasn't wanted to stop him. So lots of lessons here have jaundice, go to.

The pancreas that was blocking the passageway and causing a lot of pain. Why does it do it while the pancreas cancer often is just close to the Celia nerves, and it grows into the nerves and causes pain? So there's a lot of people who have John or pain our weight loss from pancreas cancer. Otherwise, pancreas cancers a tough cancer diagnosed early and there's not an early warning system like Pap smears for cervical cancer mammograms for breast cancer PSA's for prostate cancer, pancreas cancers.

"Hey, Dr Liederman were back. We are back. I wanna talk about a seventy three year old woman. This woman who flew in from Detroit Michigan. She was born in Detroit. She lives in Detroit. She came from Detroit. Just for a second opinion. Why there's big hospitals in Detroit wells had to say she went to the big hospitals in Detroit. He's seventy three she's married had darkening of the year and yellowing of the skin. You probably know what that means. That means there's. Probably an obstruction of her bilberry system the system that passes juices from her gall bladder and liver into her intestines. That's our stool becomes the colored is because those juices, and when those juices are blocked, the stool becomes light like Klay colored the urine becomes stark like tea colored in the skin turns yellow, and you've probably seen people who are jaundiced was. She went to one of the big hospitals in Michigan. Went to the emergency room. She had a stent play. She was found to have a cancer in the pancreas. And like I talked about stay called the surge in the search has all you gotta have a Whipple procedure, which is a big surgical procedure. And just eleven months ago. She had a Whipple procedure on her pancreas shed, one of thirty seven lymph nodes positive the doctor who took out the. Pancreas said, well, you better have chemo because you never know. She started chemo Jim side of being in the low to shed five cycles, and she became very super toxic with colitis and she was unable to further chemotherapy. And she was hospitalized for a month. Because of the toxicity of chemotherapy, which is something we talk about often. Why did we talk about it because it's true chemotherapy for most people kind of poison that goes in the body and they're trying to poison the cancer more than the body. But not always working that way this case. The body got poisoned with the side effects and the cancer ward kept on growing and growing and growing and within a few months at a new cat scan and showed a mass in the liver. And it then subsequently showed a mass in the pancreas and the cancer came right back where the certain operated again, I just told you about a man who had his kidney removed and the cancer came right back where the kidney was removed. Remember, I told you about a man who lost a kidney and a half and the cancer came right back where the where's a patient who had her pancreas removed and the cancer came right back there and spread to the liver. So that surgery really was useless the cancer came back locally it came back distantly. What was the point of that certain point was to try to cure the patient? Well, maybe there's better methods. And I think we have better methods. Not touching the cancer not opening up the body, but using precision precise pinpoint noninvasive invisible beams to treat pancreas cancers. And then well shed more scans and more progression in the liver. Biopsy should a biopsy. Deliver and that proved book cancer, oh, you don't really need a liver biopsy to prove the cancer. You have this cancer in the pancreas. And it comes back in the pancreas where it was. And it goes back and deliver. Well, this is exactly what pancreas does. And she lost weight. She went from one hundred and thirty five pounds to one hundred and fourteen pounds. She lost twenty pounds in a short period of time. Wow. And she says she feels like a mental wreck because of the cancer. She's an ex smoker. A nice woman, a lovely woman a devoted husband and there. She is had a whip. Oh, the mass and the. Lymph node by the pancreas amass mass with a pancreas was the mass of the liver, and she's come to me because she's fat up with her surgeons back home and the came out doctors back home and while they had no answers for her. They had no answers and she had family who listen to this radio show. Just like you. And when I say that listeners save lives. I mean, it I mean that you can help people get better care, and I have patients I asked him. Why did you come? They said, well, I was at Macy's at the grocery store. I was at the gas station talking about my cancer. And someone heard me that just said, hey, you better go see Dr Liederman go see Dr Liederman call to win two choices. And sometimes people have my business card and pass it on to say, hey, call doctor Liederman, get a second opinion. And that's why we're here.

"And doctor doctor got a blood test and the alkaline foster taste, which is an enzyme from the liver was elevated. And he did a cat scan and found a mass in the pancreas. He told her that the alkaline phosphates was a sign of pancreas cancer. Well, it's not just a minute. So she went to one of the big hospital shed robotics surgery to remove the the distal part of her pancreas. And then they found three tumors three tumors, and I called the pathologist while the patient was often do that. So the patient, and I can understand the most. Because I read the report it wasn't clear. There was three tumors and two cancers in her. Pancreas, doctor cutout half of it. But it's the same doctor told her that the alkaline phosphates was the sign of the cancer of the Alkan fossil tastes a of the cancer and the Kansas cut out, then the Oakland phosphates should be back to normal. Right. Well, according to his logic, at least, not my logic so repeatedly Oakland, foster taste still elevated. So what does this mean for number one? We know that many people with pancreas cancer die. They die of the pancreas cancer. Number two. What he told her that the relationship of alcohol taste to the pancreas cancer. Really wasn't true foster tastes was high before it's still high before and after the surgery, it's unrelated there are the possibility of further treatments for her. Why further treatments because we know that most people with pancreas cancer end up succumbing to their disease, although I can tell you about one of our patients who just flew in from. Tijuana Mexico with pancreas cancer. She was worked up in Mexico. She had biopsies which failed. They tried to open up her body to cut out the cancer of the pancreas at failed cancerous wrapped around plug vessels. She flew from Tijuana here to New York or family her son in law and daughter heard about our innovative work here. She saw chemotherapy doctors chemotherapy doctors wanted to give her chemo endlessly only, and she saw me, and we fought we really fought over the direction because. Number one, chemo doesn't cure anyone with pancreas cancer. And yet that doctor wanted to give her endless chemo number two. We know that there's only two ways of potentially curing pancreas cancer surgery, one is radiation and why withhold the two best treatments. Knowing already the surgery didn't work. So why would he give chemotherapy endlessly? Well, we we know a lot about the chemotherapy industry. There's a lot of ties between the pharmaceutical companies and chemo doctors, and we saw that this past week the last few weeks with certain doctors are getting thousands hundreds of thousands even millions of dollars from the drug companies and certain doctors are promoting drugs that don't work when they work for the drug company. Well, we don't want that we want a pure innocent way of treating patients the best possible way. We don't take any money from..

"Free informative booklet and DVD. Hey, Dr Liederman were back were back forte by the lady I saw she's eighty one. She's married and she has diabetes. I blood pressure, and she saw her doctor, and she got some blood tests. Sometimes like go the doctor and get blood tests, but they got blood tests, and they found the elevated alkaline foster tasers enzyme could be from various parts of the body. But the doctor said, well, let me get a cat scan. They got a cat scan that he saw mass in the pancreas. She never had problems. The pancreas. You never had. Cancer markers for the pancreas. And then this doctor Senator to the surgeon and the surgeon removed half of her pancreas and found actually three tumors to cancers in the back half of the pancreas and the patient, then came to me for a second opinion. She was show happy that her doctor got this Alkan faster tastes and her doctor told her well, the Oakland foster taste showed that there was a cancer there. And that's how he found it. He said, and I said, well, if that's the case. Because it's usually not the case alkaline phosphate, which is a blood test is not a test for pancreas cancer. And please don't think it is. And I approved it to this lady. And how did I prove it? Well, I got another Oakland faster taste before the surgery before she knew she had pancreatic cancer was five hundred afterwards this week. I repeated the test it's still five hundred. When her pancreas was half removed. So then we staged her up and we saw what's in her body. And that's the issue. This is a woman who's got three tumors in her Pancras that was removed. She had to cancers to separate cancers. And while the patient was there, I called the pathologist to confirm the pancreas cancer. And the woman had never been told shed three separate tumors in her pancreas, another reason to come to Radio New York to find out what you truly have. And I can tell you so often people get me on the phone and say, hey, Dr Liederman, I just wanna tell you what I have to tell you ninety nine percent of the people don't actually know what they have in the detail that we need to know about it. And I'm not blaming the patient is often the doctors who are taking care of the patients don't sit down. Don't explain don't tell the patient and don't give them the paperwork. So they can discover what they have and. New York it is so different. So this woman now understands says three tumors in the pancreas cancers, and it's totally unrelated to the. Oakland, foster tastes. So what are we doing? We're staging her up. We're offering or other treatment were offer your treatment because the fatality rate of pancreas cancer is so high and she has multiple forci of cancer, multiple areas of cancer Pancras that she has a chance to be a long term survivor, and we do have many long term survivors, the best way is to come early. And not delay. Not delay. Don't delay the treatment. We're talking about a woman twelve her two sisters came into see me just yesterday, and lovely woman. And I thought they were going out. They look like they're going out for dinner. There looked healthy and happy, and they were altogether. Well, the patient was the sixty year old sister. She's sixty years old. She's a marriage has one child and she was fine until two years ago when she started eating ice. Okay. There's a name for that. There's a medico name called pica when you start eating crazy things. And sometimes people think it's a result of upset imbalance of the body. The causes people. Eat a variety of different things doesn't have to be ice. It can be crayons and wax and all kinds of things that are not considered normal food. They aren't food. So at that time because of the pike she was actually found to be anemic and the Nimia was probably causing her craving in her mouth to eat ice. And she had a colonoscopy to evaluate. Later anemia and the colonoscopy found a colon cancer. This was about two years ago. She went to surgery at one of the super duper big places. She had sixty eight lymph nodes taken and two of the sixty eight had spread the patient reports. There was no cat scanner pet scan done before the surgery. Wow. It's what we talk about so often that the surgeon seems so hot to cut on the patient that they don't stop to stay job to determine the extent of the cancer. So it just popped in that did co founded patient with anemia because she was eating is. She was in the mic did colonoscopy found the cancer center. The surgeon who removed part of the colon. And then she started on chemotherapy and chemotherapy. Well, wasn't working quite right. There were cancer markers. Kudos to the doctors. Who did cancer markers, the normal cancer, Mark, which is a blood test is called C E A for colon cancer and her C E A started rising while she's on chemotherapy. And finally, finally finally the doctor's got a scan of her body and they found cancer in her liver. If aound cancer that a traveled to the liver, and she still at the super duper fancy place is sent from the chemo, Dr to the surgeons which so commonly happens, and we talk about it all the time. So patient center a hospital. It's almost like a pinball machine. And the patient is ball bouncing around all the doctors came oh doctors doctors deliver doctors the colonoscopy doctors surgeon doctors on college doctors like a pinball, and she gets hooked up with the surgeons and the surgeons tower she has to get these two tumors removed from her liver. We don't even know how long they were there that we don't even know if they were there before the colon cancer was I discovered because the surgeons never did a scan before her initial surgery. So she did everything was asked of her. She got liver tumors respected, and she's been on chemotherapy. Happy. She's been on chemotherapy for nearly a year. And three quarters about two years, and she's suffering from this almost two years of chemotherapy, she has a neuropathy. She has that's when you go pains and numbness in the hands the feet, and she does exactly which chemotherapy caused her cancer markers going up in the past couple of months or CA was four. And now it's more than ten. And the doctors told her after getting a pet scans that everything was ok that she was okay. A pet scan. She had cancer marker and the doctors the chemo doctors at the super duper place told her, hey, don't worry about it. It's only a blood test. You don't need any more treatment for now. And then we'll start came. Oh, more later and she came with her sisters to understand what's going on in her body for the last two years. And that's what we sat down and explained to her and they even called up the radiologist. She a pet scan at the super duper big plays. And I remember the treating doctor the chemo doctor told her the pet scan was okay? And the cancer marker doesn't mean anything. Well, if it doesn't mean anything why was he doing the pet scan? Why was he doing the cancer marker? And we call up the radiologist and ask the radiologist. Hey, can you please? Explain this pet scan and the radiologist was great actually returned my call promptly while the patient was. Still there and the patient on speakerphone heard the doctors say that the basically the only thing this could be recurrence of the cancer in deliver right where she had the surgery, by the way, she had chemotherapy infused in the liver. She went through another operation to place a pump to pump chemo into her liver. So for nearly two years she's at chemo through the veins. She said chemo into the liver directly, and she had surgery to remove the tumors in the liver and the cancers right back, and it's right back. And we know about it two separate ways number one her C E A, the cancer marker went from four to ten, and we repeated it I repeated it just to show her that has confirmed and recalled the radiologist, and she heard it from the radiologist that the cancer is back in the liver. Right where she had surgery at that super duper big place. And she and her sisters were shocked. Because this doctor has been given chemo for nearly two years, and they couldn't believe that. She was being misled by that doctor who's giving chemotherapy. Well, the the radiology report said this is cancer coming back and deliver the cancer marker, basically, saying bad news. And she's wondering why she listened and got nearly two years of chemo. And none of it worked. She got chemo after the Colin reception. And then the liver cancers grew she got chemotherapy after the colon was removed and deliver removed and the chemo cap on flowing for two years. Remember came on average is about ten thousand dollars a month. So if you take two years of came on that's about a quarter million dollars, plus multiple surgeries, plus a pump in her abdomen. Plus the pet scans and cat scans and other tests. And then to be told they don't know what the tests mean, it means nothing when in fact, the tests say quiver unequivocally that the cancer is back in the liver, and the C E A indicates that the cancer is back as well. And she asked me what are the other option? She's had surgery to work just had chemo didn't work. And so we talked about all the options she could have more chemo, but the likelihood of more chemo working is less than less than the last. It's already not working shed surgery, and she's not very hot to have more surgery. Shed surge. Colon cancer and surgery in the liver. And now the is back, and we talked about other methods of treatment we talked about treatment directly into that hole in their lever. We talked about radio surgery, which is non invasive treatment with a ninety percent success rate, and I can tell that she likes the idea of non invasive treatment. And then you.
